Background and Topics

The European sCO2 Research & Development Alliance aims at providing a platform for exchanging knowledge on supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) technologies in the energy sector for academia and industry, as well as promoting this topic in society.
Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (sCO2) technology is an innovative concept in power generation, which employs CO2 in supercritical state as working fluid in closed-loop Joule-Brayton cycles. Unlike conventional power generation, sCO2 power systems would ensure security and flexibility of electricity supply at lower capital and operational costs with a reduced carbon footprint.
The European Conferences on Supercritical CO2 (sCO2) were initiated in Vienna in 2016.

Conference Topics (related to Energy Systems)

  • Heat Exchanger and Transfer
  • Turbomachines and Cycles
  • sCO2 Applications and Energy Systems
  • sCO2 Experiments and Loops

The organisation of the conference is divided into a local organisation team and a general committee team.
The local organisation team manages the conference venue, including accommodations and hotel recommendations as well as traveling advices. The team is led by one of the general committee team members.
The general committee team, on the other hand, arranges the paper review process, registration, the agenda preparation and manages external contacts and the committee's representation.
